Mumbai (PTI): Actress Sonakshi
Sinha starrer “Noor”,
which is based on Pakistani
author Saba Imtiaz’s novel
“Karachi, You’re Killing Me”,
will release in Pakistan.
When asked if “Noor” will
have a release across the border,
producer Bhushan Kumar
told reporters, “Yes, we are releasing
the film in Pakistan.”
The Sunhil Sippy-directed film
follows journalist-writer Noor’s
misadventures and love life as
she navigates her way through
Mumbai.
The setting of the movie has
been changed from Karachi to
Mumbai and the director says
it was meant to be like that as
the team worked hard to adapt
the book into Indian setting.
“The book was really just the
germ of the idea. We took
those characters and adapted
it to Mumbai. There is no link
at all between the two, it’s just
the germ of the idea,” Sippy
says.
Sonakshi says her respect for
journalists has grown after
playing one in the movie.
“I have tremendous respect
for journalists. It is not easy being
a journalist and especially
the way you all work. I really
respect that. Noor is also one
of you.
“As celebrities we don’t know
in detail what journalists go
through. While doing the film, I
realised the kind of work journalists
do.”
“Noor” is scheduled to release
on April 21.
